Product Description

Will the Silicon Power 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD Work in Any PC?

We've seen great speeds in the new Silicon Power 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD from Western Digital, especially in 4K video editing, and now we're seeing the same great results in our own computers. In other words, our benchmarking data clearly shows that the Silicon Power 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD is the fastest flash drive we've tested to date.

Flash drives are designed to perform a variety of tasks. This makes them a popular choice for many tasks, which is why you're going to see some people getting excited over a dual boot PC running Windows and Linux on the same drive.

Most of us, however, don't have our initial reaction and make assumptions. We tend to assume that flash drives need to be able to be connected and disconnected at will to maintain data integrity. Unfortunately, there are a number of flaws in this assumption.

USB, for example, can be designed to work with a very high degree of reliability. There are literally thousands of possible interface combinations between USB and different computer systems.

For example, many computers will feature an on/off switch. Some of the most popular interfaces will have their own physical switches that enable these drives to work with the computer.

If you disconnect and connect a USB flash drive without taking advantage of that switch, your operating system may stop responding to your commands. And since it's in its early stages, it won't know what to do.

So to avoid these problems, run a co-existence test before you plug in the drive. Run it once, and if everything works as expected, then that's the first time it should be connected. Otherwise, run the test again.

Also, the second time you run the co-existence test, hook the drive up to your PSU. Plug the drive into a different PC, and observe it in real time. If the system hangs, or the drive causes a blue screen or even some error messages, it's probably because the drive is having issues with the PSU.

If your system is having trouble booting after using the Silicon Power 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD, then perhaps there's a problem with the drive. If it works perfectly with your PSU, then it must be working perfectly with your computer.

The last thing to look for is if you get any errors or warnings about overheating, or short circuiting your PSU. If you find either of these, it's pretty much a guarantee that your PC isn't getting enough juice from the Silicone Power 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD.

We found that in an average day, the PXB-512-SX used about three percent of the PAS1500's power supply, while the PAS1500 only uses one-third of the PAS1500's power. And we've had no trouble using the drive, even after running the test repeatedly and checking for any problems.

So if you're running into problems with your Silicondata 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD, it might be due to an issue with your PC's PSU. It might also be due to some internal flaw in the Silicondata's flash storage.

Product Features

Super-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface for read/write speeds of up to 3,400MB/s / 2,300MB/s NVMe 1.3 support. RAID engine for enhanced data integrity Slim form factor M.2 2280 (80mm) for perfect fit in slim and portable mobile applications or desktop PCs To support a Silicon Power PCIe SSD, the system must have an M.2 connector with only an M key. The Silicon Power PCIe SSD does not have a B notch and therefore, the B key on the SSD connector will prevent it from being inserted. The custom screw should come with the motherboard or PC. Please acquire the screw from your motherboard or PC manufacturer, if needed
